After performing an analysis of more than 400,000 flight bookings, travel experts at FlightNetwork.com have presented their findings: 10 common mistakes travelers make when booking flights. Forgetting to check passport expiry dates was listed as the most common while, entering incorrect names quickly followed as number two.

"One of the most budget-busting, stress-inducing experiences in travel is making a mistake with your booking and not realizing it until it's too late," says Neil Bhapkar, Chief Marketing Officer at Flight Network. "Booking mistakes can really ruin a trip - or even worse, prevent one from happening."

The travel experts at Flight Network are all too familiar with the pain of booking mistakes. They encounter them more often than one would expect - some daily. From travelers booking the wrong airport to travelers ending up at the wrong destination, the Flight Network team has seen it all.

"It's so important that travelers use caution when making a flight reservation, or any reservation for that matter," adds Bhapkar. "Our hope is that this study will educate travelers on the important factors to consider when booking online and what they can do to avoid costly mistakes from happening. Ultimately, we urge travelers to check, double-check and check again before confirming their purchases."

If there is one commonality among all booking mistakes, it is that they are all avoidable. Travelers can prevent a mistake from happening if they are aware of the precautions to take.
